For the last five years, the About Damn Time artist has celebrated Juneteenth by using her platform to shine a spotlight on community organizations that address inequalities and empower marginalized groups.

"This year – we’re talking about the Intersectionality of Liberation," Lizzo continued.

"I’ll have uplifting conversations with incredible reproductive health activists, LGBTQ+ heroes, the women humanizing the houseless crises, to promising young environmentalist leaders. We take the time to honor and thank these organizers who remind us activism can be a life’s work."

Lizzo shares conversations with community activists and advocates for Juneteenth

For her 2024 Juneteenth celebration, Lizzo is sharing conversations with activists from three organizations. On Wednesday she shared a conversation with Kara James, a Nurse Practitioner at Planned Parenthood Inglewood. James and the pop star talked about reproductive justice and the importance of community healthcare.

On Thursday, Lizzo will reportedly share a conversation with Atlantis Narcisse, founder of Save Our Sisters United, Inc. (S.O.S.U.) as well as environmental activist Mari Copeny to discuss the importance of advocacy work.

On Friday, Lizzo and Shirley Raines will talk about providing resources to underserved communities.
